Synopsis: Produced in association with the Royal Geographical Society, Polar Explorations looks back at a heroic age, when explorers ventured forth to conquer nature's last bastions. It follows the most incredible voyages in history, from the initial navigation of the Northwest Passage to first flights over the Antarctic. There are impressive accounts of Shackleton's famed open-boat journey, Mawson's solo trek across the Polar Plateau, Ellsworth's transatlantic flight, and more. Lesser-known stories of cannibalism, madness, sabotage, and mutiny capture the thrill and danger of these amazing missions.

About the Author: Beau Riffenburgh specializes in polar exploration. He earned his doctorate degree at the Scott Polar Research Institute at the University of Cambridge and was editor of Polar Record, the world's oldest journal of polar research, the head of the Polar History Group at the Scott Polar Research Institute and a lecturer in the history faculty of the University of Cambridge. He has written several books on exploration and for Andre Deutsch he wrote the Royal Geographical Society Exploration Experience (2007) and The Titanic Experience (2008).
